Bloomberg, Once Again, is the Un-Spitzer

Here’s a nice example of the different approaches to getting things done in Albany employed by Eliot Spitzer and Michael Bloomberg:

After Sheldon Silver blocked a vote on whether to open a recycling transportation plant in Manhattan, the reaction from City Hall was decidedly muted. Bloomberg aide Farrell Sklerov said in public statement, "We will continue to answer any questions that are raised and explain the various analyses which have been done. We remain optimistic that we will convince the leaders in Albany that Gansevoort is the best and by far the most cost effective site to handle recyclable materials."


Spitzer, one guesses, would have had a different reaction. Bloomberg, Once Again, is the Un-Spitzer
